This was a very long and hard process for me and Robert Russell and staff always made me feel at ease. There was never any questions unanswered whether it was in person, email or phone. Always very prompt!
I knew I needed to file for bankruptcy, but what lawyer would I go with? Bankruptcy is a serious matter and I needed someone who had great reviews, this is not just some random restaurant on yelp. I needed the best for my bankruptcy case. I needed it all to go according to plan so I could come out the other end with no debt. I noticed Robert Russell had so many positive reviews, right then, I knew I found the right person to handle my case!
Bankruptcy means filling out lots of paperwork. Robert Russell has it all in a worksheet format, so it's easy to fill out, just takes lots of time from start to finish. When I went to the courtroom, (other debtors also in there), to have a public meeting with the bankruptcy trustee for questioning. I had the chance to observe other bankruptcy attorneys with their clients. All the clients seemed nervous (just like me) but some could not answer questions correctly or made errors in the paperwork and their attorney never caught it and they had to reschedule the trustee meeting. Robert Russell was up there with me and oversaw my questioning. I answered the trustee questions and my paperwork was in perfect condition, everything went through smoothly.
The two legal assistants were very quick to respond to the emails and keep me up-to-date on everything. They were super kind and double checked all my paperwork for mistakes. They work very hard and are on top of everything.
I would recommend Robert Russell to anyone who is looking into the possibility of bankruptcy. This attorney knows bankruptcy inside and out.
I recently had a lawsuit filed against me for past medical bills. Not knowing what to do, I called Robert Russell. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. After helping me to realize bankruptcy would not be my best option, he worked with the other party to reach a settlement agreement. Without his help, I wouldn't have known what to do. I highly recommend Robert Russell to anyone needing help with bankruptcy.
I have consulted with Mr. Russell on several issues regarding debt repayment (including student loans), debt collections, as well as ways to actually avoid bankruptcy. Mr. Russell is a top notch lawyer who is very knowledgeable about the financial legal system and will go out of his way to help you.
Robert is exceptional without being condescending. His staff is honest & exceptional too. Always quick, thorough,courteous responses to any questions or concerns throughout our businesses. It's hardly a happy, or easy situation when you need an attorney, but Robert and his staff always made each step as painless And easy as possible, by keeping us informed all the way thru each step. I would recommend Robert for any legal needs you may have.
Rob Russell is the best bankruptcy attorney in Vancouver, Washington. It was a nerve-wrecking time but he guided us, with confidence, from filling out the paperwork to receiving our discharge notification. When we went, along with other debtors, to the public meeting with the bankruptcy trustee for questioning and verification, we had the opportunity to watch some of the other local bankruptcy attorneys in action. Some of them stumbled over the questions and seemed nervous. Some of them had made mistakes in the paperwork and had to reschedule the trustee meeting to supplement the materials. (This means all their clients had to get more time off from work to go back to the bankruptcy courthouse a second time). When it was our turn, there were no mistakes in our file. We needed Rob to help us answer the questions and although he was not allowed to answer for us, he knew exactly where everything in the file was and would point us in the right direction every time.
I would not file bankruptcy with anyone but Rob Russell. He is the best in the business, is reasonably priced, and has a great way of helping you stay calm through a nerve-wrecking process.
Robert and his staff always kept me informed throughout the process of my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I would recommend using his firm to anyone who is in need of the services he provides. My case turned into more than what we both expected and was very fair in regards to his compensation.
As a single mom, every penny I make is important. I found myself needing to file bankruptcy and really knew nothing about the process. Mr. Russell, and Lauren (one of the legal assistants in the office) were amazing! The process was painless, and I was kept in the know 100% of the time. At my creditor meeting, Mr. Russel was extremely reassuring, and even went the extra mile for me in a few instances. I will definitely come back to this office, should the need for any other legal assistance arise! Definiately a team well worth singing the praises of! Thank you guys!
I have been working with Robert Russell for some time now, and since day one he has been very helpful, always available and worked hard to help me create a sustainable plan with my Chap. 13 Trustee. That was super important to me to feel comfortable which such a hardship time in my life, he handled it with class.
While typically these reviews are about the lawyer, such as Robert Russell, I really wanted to send my gratitude and thanks to his wonderful legal assistants and team "Behind the scenes"... In particularly Lauren, she has been "Wonderful" to work with, she is always very responsive, helpful and get things done very quickly!
So not only is Robert Russell a great attorney to have, but his entire team is excellent and is critical to getting things done quickly and accurately! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Robert Russell Law Firm!
I'm a new client with Robert Russell Law Firm. I hired Mr. Russell to represent me in a chapter 7 bankruptcy, I'm very glad I did. I found Mr. Russell personable (very likable) and yet, very professional. The staff mirrored that feeling and assisted me as needed for which I am grateful. I was provided with all necessary forms, information and assistance to complete my filing with confidence in my attorney.
